Howdy, Eric, Well, you can either be cool, like you. Or look cool, like me! :-) yes, Week 3 this year. Bob and I have to work the Canmore folk festival every year, so this dictates which week we have avail for PSGW. This year, it is week 3. For some unknown reason, is why Ed and Roy seem to want to share this week. You would think that with this advance knowledge, they would pick another week. :-)
Finally (!) I am getting around to responding to your comment re: the Crab Walk.
I learned this exercise from investigating the playing technique of the great Oregon guitarist, Ralph Towner. It was also the subject of one of my columns back in the Sept/Oct issue of 2002! I have an mp3 of the audio lesson that I would be happy to email to you. Just contact me at email@example.com and I'll send it. Perhaps you can find the column in the FPG archives. It is a great exercise and develops the ability to sustain notes while other notes are moving...meant to be played v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y. Sorry to take so long to respond.
